  • Virginie was the perfect hostess!! She was warm and welcoming...I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The flat was exactly what I needed for my first trip to Barcelona. It was beautiful...straight out of a magazine and central enough to allow me to see the city in a very unique way. The neighbourhood was jostling with people, the scent of freshly baked bread and full of life and laughter!

    Virginie was warm and welcoming! I felt at home immediately. She gave me tips to see the city and allowed me to make the place my own. I highly recommend a stay with Virginie and will be recommending her flat to anyone who visits Barcelona!

  • Virginies flat was a nice, sort of bohemian style place in the center of a neighborhood. The location is a little West of most tourist attractions but it offered a very authentic Barcelona feel to the trip. The other negative was that the main hallway smelled like chemicals or diesel. Virginie said this was temporary, but it did negatively impact out trip.

  • Virginie was very responsive and very attentive to our questions/clarifications. The apartment felt a little different, but clean and tidy, than I had imagined and is next door to a meat/butcher shop. As we walked into the hallway you could smell the meat and if you're not used to it, or never been around the scent, it was strong. With the large front window facing the street and the surrounding apartment complexes it was very loud and the noises (neighbors, cars, pedestrians) would only quiet down between 1 -5 am. The thing that was a definite surprise was the (email hidden) is only a couple steps away from the bed and no door/privacy. The last night we experienced a lot of mosquito/bug bites and had a very difficult time sleeping. Location was central and easy to catch the metro, walk to Las Ramblas and get around Barcelona.

  • Picture perfect! This lovely, cosy appartment was just what we needed.
    We travelled with our 7 months old baby boy. All facilities for him were there. We stayed more inside than usual for his naps and early sleeptime, but we didn't mind. Thanks to the comfy sofa, little balcony and a good bottle of wine!
    Virginie was a great host, quick in answering emails, a warm welcome and she gave us lots of privacy.
    Raval is a nice neighbourhood, a bit grungy but upcoming with a good atmosphere and some great cafe's. Everything is in walking distance, or else there's a metro station nearby.
    One tip for travelling with baby's: the stairs to the appartment are really narrow. Make sure your stroller can be folded. Or bring a baby carrier.

  • We have stayed at Virginie's place for two nights. The flat is exactly the same with the photos in airbnb, it is a designed in a modern and unique way. Me and my wife really liked every single detail in the flat. It was tidy and clean when we arrived, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and hot water was working properly. Wifi was superfast. It's location is very central, you can walk to Las Ramblas in 5 minutes.

    Virginie helped us during arrival and departure, she is a caring host.

  • Notre séjour au coeur du Raval, quartier animé et cosmopolite, a été très agréable grâce à la situation idéale de l'appartement proposé par Virginie (tout près des Ramblas, du quartier historique...) et à son ambiance cosy, pleine de charme : idéal pour un couple ! Le ventilateur dans la chambre est un vrai plus et malgré la rue perpétuellement animée (mais pour ainsi dire piétonne) : aucun bruit une fois les fenêtres fermées. La boulangerie au pied de l'immeuble, ouverte de 7h à 23h est un vrai plus aussi. Le contact avec Virginie a été très facile bien que nous n'ayons pas eu la chance de la croiser (c'est une hôte très discrète !) ; son appartement et celui en location ont un hall d'entrée commun. Nous avons apprécié sa délicate attention de nous laisser du "cava" (champagne local) devant la porte, pour fêter la Sant Jordi, une fête populaire...
    A savoir : pas de véritable cuisine dans l'appartement, simplement un frigo et un micro-ondes donc il n'est pas possible de cuisiner... (mais pour manger du jambon ibérique et du manchego, ce n'est pas un problème !)

  • It' was a very pleasant stay in Viriginies flat. She was very welcoming and friendly.
    The location of the apartment was good, and it was easy that all the shops were so close and always open.

    Too bad that because of easter her shop was closed. I would defenitly come back and stay there again, and visit the shop.
